NOTD - Barry M Nail Paint in Dusky Mauve

I've been buying loads of nail polishes but not really showing any of them so I thought it was time to start doing some regular NOTD posts. The first is Barry M's Dusky Mauve.

Charlotte over at Lipglossing did an amazing comparison post of this nail polish with the Chanel Paradoxal. Check that out here

It is such a beautiful colour when it catches the light but when you can't see the purple shimmer, it still makes a really nice winter-y colour. The picture is of two coats which is normal for most Barry M polishes to get a good opaque colour.

October Favourites

It's that time again :) Sorry this is a few days late but with the days getting darker much faster now it means I cant take good pictures after school so all picture taking has to be done at the weekends. This could mean a lack of posts in the future :( But anyways, this is what I have been loving this month:

The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Stain in 01 I never really used this a lot but now that it is winter it just adds a really nice red flush to either your cheeks or lips. I wore it on bonfire night and loved it :)

Revlon ColorStay for Normal/Dry Skin in 110 Ivory I have wanted to buy this for moths but never did for some reason. Then it went on sale in Superdrug for £9.99 and I had some birthday money so I figured why not. I am so glad I did :) It covers nicely, I love the smell and it comes in an amazing colour range.

Mac Studio Finish Concealer in NW15 Easily the best concealer I own for covering imperfections.

Boots No7 Eyeshadow in 60 Mink I bought this because I had one of those £5 off no7 vouchers so it only cost me £2.50 and it is so much better than I thought it would be. I don't know if I would pay £7.50 for another one though, I'll just wait until I have another voucher :P

W7 Blush Brush If you don't like the idea of paying loads for make-up brushes then I recommend W7 100%. They have a great range and they are sooo inexpensive! This brush is really good for applying powder and only cost £3!

Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara in Black A birthday present from my friend which I love! I always ignore the Rimmel counter for some reason but I think I might have to look further into their other mascaras because this one is really good!
